Having received a makeover just in time for the holiday, the Chanukah App’s user base is growing by leaps and bounds, and aims to double its reach this year.

It’s almost Chanukah and Anash.org has discovered that the famous Chanukah App has been updated – just in time!
This app is the only one you’ll need to celebrate with style, and using the latest technology. It currently offers Chanukah brachos in six languages, a video tutorial on how to light the menorah, a 30 minute timer and an animated menorah that shows the positioning and amount of candles per night.
Stuck without a dreidel, or want to play a more exciting version? The App can help you out there too. The virtual Dreidel Game offers randomly-generated results and fun top view animation. And the icing on the cake? The app also features photo and social networking capabilities.
Updates for the latest version include brand new graphic design, new dates for this year’s lighting in the Candles Tutorial and English transliteration. “Our goal is to reach at least 200,000 people just this Chanukah,” says Shmuel Aber of The Saber Team, Chanukah App’s creator. “We want to double our current users.”
This app was made possible thanks to the generosity of Estate Diamond Jewelry, a vintage jewelry company located in Midtown Manhattan. This is the same company that made the news last Chanukah for breaking the world record for most valuable dreidel.
The app is dedicated in loving memory of Shaina Bracha a”h Bas Shmuel Sheyichye.
